Dr.Windows is a free pranking software that displays harmless funny error messages to play pranks on friends. This prank playing software offers over 50 fun dialogs that can be displayed at random intervals. You can either go with random messages or opt to select application specific messages. You can customize the hotkey and also set the duration in which you wish to see the error box. Not only that, it lets you test the dialog box randomly, and checkout how it goes. Some random messages are linked with a chain of messages that will literally drive your friends crazy.
The error messages appear on your screen with sound notification, making it more realistic. The message below, once made me think, whether I am really a Human?
You can create custom messages and link funny dialog boxes to create a chain of messages. This feature did not work for me. You can try Prankster Professional, to enjoy bunch of pranks in one setup. In addition you can also try some similar software we reviewed earlier.
